Mark Squires, Best of Mark Squires 2018 review:  2017 Vadio Branco ( 90 points)  This small producer is part of a relatively new wave in Bairrada. Bairrada whites work, too (and very well!), not just Baga.


Farah's Overview: Vadio's winemaker, Luis Patrao is doing it right! In 2017 Vadio was awarded Wine & Spirits Magazine’s top 100 wineries in the world. Luis founded Vadio in 2005 with his family’s small 1.2 acre vineyard in Bairrada. He brought on his father to farm the grapes and rehabbed an old rural pharmacy as his winery. 

Bairrada, close to the Atlantic, is known for sparkling wine and suckling pig. The average vineyard size is a mere .05 acre. For decades, about 17,000 of the region’s 50,000 acres of vines have been abandoned by younger generations who inherited the land yet choose to live in the city. Young winemakers like Luis are seizing the opportunity to acquire vines and make the classic still and sparkling wines that rarely leave the region.

The 2017 Vadio Branco is bright bursting with winter citrus and green apple. The salinity and mineral notes lend to it being grown in sandy and limestone soil and fermented in a mix of stainless steel and oak barrels.
